With so much of the Greater Sacramento region steeped in Railroad history, it is no wonder that a popular local attraction is the California State Railroad Museum.
Located in Old Sacramento proper next to the Sacramento River, this wonderful facility is perfect for an afternoon visit or educational day trip out with the kids. The California State Railroad Museum is a fun complex chocked full f historic facilities and unique attractions for those of all ages to enjoy. There are restored trains, seasonal exhibits, events and more! Including every weekend between April and September you can ride behind a real locomotive!
The California State Railway Museum first opened to the public in 1976 and is one of Sacramento’s most popular visitor destinations with over half a million people stopping by annually. There are six buildings full of exhibits including 21 restored locomotives and cars. When visiting the museum it is as if you are taking a journey back in time and watching the railroad as it changed throughout the age. There is even a Pullman-style sleeping car, a dining car filled with railroad china, and a Railway Post Office that visitors can actually step aboard! So it is definitely an educational experience and one that is great for those who are new to the area to enjoy and learn more about the importance of the Railroad in the founding and development of the Sacramento area as it is today.
Definitely check it out! The museum is open every day from 10am until 5pm, admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Parking is a little limited around the museum but there is a large parking garage on I Street.
